Revolutionizing Real Estate Marketing
During the inception of the AI-driven branding campaign, the B2C Marketing Team at SMG Real Estate, led by Julia Forjan, drew inspiration from visual references and conducted extensive research for the prompts. The focus was on diverse housing solutions that catered to individual preferences, ensuring resonance with the target audience in Zurich and beyond. Creative ideas were brainstormed to effectively convey the concept visually.
Carefully crafted prompts for AI-powered images encapsulated Homegate’s brand identity and the campaign’s theme. Relevant visual references, architectural inspirations, and lifestyle depictions guided Midjourney’s AI algorithms, aligning with the team’s creative vision.
The team considered disclosing the AI-generated nature of the images but opted against it. Prioritizing familiarity and connection, the visuals aimed to evoke positive emotions and associations with Homegate’s brand. By avoiding explicit mentions of AI, they aimed to present clear, relatable visuals, forging an authentic and inviting connection with the audience.
